Real Madrid exit Copa del Rey after losing 4-3 on aggregate across two legs to Barcelona. Today’s tie was a close match, but finding an equalizer–also a match winner due to away goal tie-breaker–proved to be too much. I didn’t see the game, but it sounded like we kept Barcelona on their heels for much of the match. Sad.
Noteworthy: Ronaldo scored a goal. Sweet form. Messi didn’t. Great. Who is better? Who cares, we still lost. Benzema scored as well. Now, let’s build momentum as we play through La Liga and Champion’s League, and let’s put the finishing touches on Barcelona in the next El Clasico!
